Bethany Life offers a variety of care options for older adults including assisted living, independent living, and long-term care. Located in Story City, Iowa, Bethany Life has been a part of the community since 1914.

Our variety of Assisted Living options offer a little extra care while keeping those we serve as independent as possible. We have both low income and market rate housing available and offer levels of care to fit each person’s unique and individual needs.
Our Independent Living is a great option for those who desire to live carefree in community. We offer both low income and market rating housing. We have townhomes as well as one bedroom, two bedroom, and studio apartments.
Our long term care households offer an environment of home and comfort for those who are no longer able to stay in their own home. Within The Households of Bethany, we have three households that are specific to those with Alzheimer’s and dementia.


Each of our service lines were created in response to the desires of older adults
